So going off those 2 points, the gap between the 2 in those areas is negligible.
And you said the differences go on and on, but you didn't list them.
So what? I'm strictly comparing their playing styles as of right now. The way Beal plays right now, May 6 2014, is similar to how Gordon played in Chicago. Period
Beal is better w/ the rock. He's a better rebounder. He's better on defense. He has a better knack for getting others involved....The ceiling is 100x higher than it ever was for Ben Gordon.
As someone who has seen Ben Gordon play in person both at UConn and in the NBA, I don't get or see the comparison.
DJs, Ben Gordon was actually very good for a few years in Chicago, and he was clutch as hell too, similar to what we're seeing from BB. I used to watch the Bulls all the time because we got WGN in our area. Very skilled 2-guard
What held him back imo was he was kind of selfish, he would get his numbers but wouldn't elevate anyone else's play. Beal might have ended up like Gordon if he went to the wrong team, but with the chemistry he's developing here with Wall I think he's gonna be on another level.
People don't realize that a lot of guys have the talent to be great, it's the attitude and work ethic that holds most back.
